Tuesday Treasures

My Treasures From This Holiday Season
This is our fisher price Hanukkah set. Florida Grandma got it for the kids when Zach(12) was quite young. We bring it out each year and no matter how big the kids get they love to play with it, the gifts really open the fridge and stove do to, and when you press on the menorah the magic happens and it lights up and plays the dreidel song.
Here Ariana is lighting the candles on the 7Th night of Hanukkah. Nikolas so seriously lights the candles on the last night of Hanukkah. He is proud to be able to do this as this was the first year we let him light the candles by himself. He is such a big boy! Ariana loves her new webkin, she named him Freedom.
I have never seen a 7 yr old SO excited to get books on the last night of Hanukkah!
The Menorah always looks so beautiful to me on the last night, I love when all the candles are lit. The kids are so proud that they are able to say the prayers and light the candles without much help. They truly are my treasures!
*note our goofy wind up dreidel in the photo. It's such a silly thing but the kids want it out each year!

Out of curiosity, I googled the Fisher Price Hanukkah set. It is still available and I discovered through additional links that Kidcraft(spelling may be incorrect) has additional sets available for kids for the various Jewish holidays.

I am so happy that this gift that I gave the kids years ago is still special to them.
